Never owned an iphone yet why waste so much money on an over priced gimmick
For me there's mainly one reason, it's the only option available running iOS. so iPhone it is. Also I like the build quality.

Re: iPhone 7 released today

Hi

Exactly it runs IOS so an excellent reason to avoid. I do admire selling $ 29 headphones for $158. I noticed that the reviews do not indicate that they have improved the sound quality. That is a clever business...pay multiple times for the same thing and each time pay more.

Have fun

Martin

Hi

Well sure for some android is better, for others windows is better and so on. My phone is the one thing I use the most and I use it for almost everything since I don't even have a laptop. So I need something reliable that works exactly the same like it did the day it came out of the box, after 2 years of use. I do like android and i always try it from time to time but everytime I do t just reminds me how I much better off with android. Notice I'm not saying iOS is better than android or android better than iOS. They have different characteristics and they serve the different needs of different people. Some people prefer costumization (which for me is pointless, changing background is more than the enough, the rest just makes a phone slower) I prefer performance. And I tried several phones. Currently I have an iPhone, an andoird phone and a windows phone. I don't comment or leave my opinions just based on hate. I talk based on my experience. And with my past experience I know a few things, on the android side flagship phones from major brands are great phones, good build quality like galaxy series (when they not exploding they are great phones) but then the android experience is horrible. Lots of bloat ware, lags, apps killed by random errors. When going to the best android experience like on the nexus 6p, I enjoy the clean and slick experience. Everything works and it takes a lot longer before it gets slower and needs a restore. But then the phone it self sucks and a 3 year old could snap in half like a cookie. So thanks but not thanks.

And besides what's wrong about me or someone else having an iPhone? Sure you don't like iPhones or apple headphones, don't buy them. Are you being buiiied by Apple? Are iPhones and expensive earpoads being forced upon you?
Almost feels like people who buy iPhones are brain damaged or maniacs.

So you buy your Apples at Migros! That's totally fine!

Have a nice weekend

Re: iPhone 7 released today

Got my 7+ from the store yesterday. Was very disorganised and spent well over an hour queuing for it despite having reserved a 15 minutes slot.

Played with the phone in store and it is very nice. Very responsive and has an excellent camera. I've read reports that the s7 and note 7 have better cameras though.

The reputation level is the stupidest thing on the forum.I have seen many forums and the English Forum is the only one that has this stupid feature.

Re: iPhone 7 released today

say you were a crazy hypocrite and bought an iphone 7 plus and rather than look like you have a lot of disposable income when you pop it in your barbour jacket pocket you want to get a case that
- disguises
- charges
- drop protects
- and maybe can also make it useable camera wise underwater

Is there such a multi purpose thing

How many of these features are even necessary?

thank you

Re: iPhone 7 released today

Rumour has it that 2017's iPhone will be the 8 not the 7S, as 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and they want a big change. Suits me as after 2 years with my 6 I'm not ready to upgrade to a very similar 7, but equally not sure I can hold out another 2 years for the 8.

One of the rumours is that they'll go back to a glass body like the iPhone 4, not sure how I feel about that one.

Why not - the 6 is already way more than powerful enough for 99% of the tasks that the vast majority of people will put it to - as are virtually all top tier phones (Android and iOS) from 2012/2013 onwards.

To be honest for most people today there are really only two or three of reasons why you would absolutely need to move to a newer model, and they are failure of the old phone, battery worn out in the case of non replaceable batteries, or your old phone is no longer supported with new system/security updates.

I still pack a 4S (along with a 6) and it still does mostly everything I need it to do.
